Chelsea’s new £50million defender wants to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious predecessor having signed from Leicester in August.

Chilwell said: “Seeing the career that he had here, obviously I wanted to emulate that, and still do.

“To have someone like that who has played for Chelsea, who’s English, it was important for me.

“I spoke to my agent because I was quite keen on getting to meet him.

“I just wanted to get to know him and pick his brains on what he thought of Chelsea as a club, how he reached the success that he reached here.

“I was quite keen to have that chat to find out things like that.

“Obviously I’m going to work as hard as I can over the next however many years to try and emulate what he’s done here.”

On what Cole told him, Chilwell simply claimed: “He just said: ‘Work hard’.

“I know it sounds pretty cliched, but he said the fans love players here who just want to work hard and who want to die for the badge.

“He said when he first came here he wanted to win for the club, he loved playing for Chelsea.

“And he said if I can take that on board, wanting to really love the club and to win for it, then I should have a great career here.”
